2 stars ECHOSILENCE are a Metal band out of Estonia with female vocals. This recording runs just under 30 minutes. I have to say this is one of those albums that just doesn't work for me. I can imagine the vocalist singing Christian pop music but not the style of music that we have here. It just doesn't sound right. The instrumental music comes across as being very predictable throughout even if it sounds good for the most part.

"Views On Views" opens with guitar that almost echoes as synths wash in, bass then an all out assault before a minute.The best minute of the whole album. Vocals come in as it settles but then it turns too sweet for my tastes 2 minutes in. Kicks back in after 5 minutes but then the vocals and sugar are back.

"Distorted Horizon" is led by bass and drums early as vocals come in. Some power a minute in as contrasts continue. I like the heavy sound 5 minutes in that continues for a minute. "Information Intoxication" is alternative sounding early on until the vocals come in. Guitars get heavy at times. "Human Animal" builds to some aggressive riffing as vocals (sometimes processed) join in. It settles 2 1/2 minutes in then kicks back in.

I can't even give this 3 stars. Just not a fan at all.
